“I wandered so aimless life filled with sin/ I wouldn’t let my dear savior in/ Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night/ Praise the lord I saw the light,” she sang as her voice echoed throughout the Gospel Cafe.

Her audience had no shortage of cheers and hollers, captivated by the young girl’s exceptional voice well beyond her years!

The gospel song was originally written by country music legend Hank Williams and released in 1948, becoming one of the singer’s most popular tunes. Although this song has been performed by an extensive list of artists throughout its time, the song was not an instant success for the singer, although gaining momentum in light of its catchy beat and inspiring message.

The crowd went wild upon Mckenzie’s finale, giving the young gem the applause she so rightfully earned. You can watch her incredible performance below!
